"MORNING POST." "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." Thursday Morning, Dec, 23, 1897. THE Q.N. BANK. [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 23 December 1897

"MORNING POST," "Neither by fear nor by favor, but by Truth alone." . ttaaday Kania*;, Pto, 73, un THE Q.N. BANK. We have waited patiently until the whole of the public of Queensland has sat in judgement upon the Q.N, Bank before saying a word for or against the institution. The past directors of the Bank have been weighed in the balance and found wanting. Fortunately for themselves, independent legal opinion does not make them " wanted." A howl of in- dignation-has gone up through the land and new terms of execration have had to be coined to fitly sum up in the minds of the majority of people the actions of the past directors and high officials of the Bank. We have held our hand because during a pop- ular excitement it is sometimes diffi- cult to be utterly fair and impartial and in such a case as this, fairness , and impartiality, are called for. Let 1 it be conceded at once that through gross and culpable negligence, if not worse,'the affairs of the Bank were got into an almost i...

PLUMP AGAINST A BIG FACT [Newspaper Article] — Morning Post — 30 December 1897

PLUMP AGAINST A BIG FACT It is not properly auy part of my business to enforce lessons in ethics ; therefore I commonly leave that re s|>onsiliIe task to whose vocation it is. But no man can continually write on the subject which constitutes the bur- den of these assays without now and then running plumb against a mighty fact in morals. If you will be good enough to read the following short letters I will then try to show why I was moved to speak as I have »poten. " My daughter Annie'Jane," writes that young girl's mother, " now five years of age, was a fine healthy child up to March 1891, when she began to sicken and fall away. She had no appetite an«) every pu tide of food she loot came up. She lost strength rapidly and within a fortnight she was thin as II rake, being not much e.se than skin and lone. Fur days und days she laid in a half-conscious con- dition, scarcely moviug hand or foot, and to all appearances lifeless. 1 had a doctor attending her for four weeks, and ho sai...

BRIEFS. Can you, dear reader, tell us or any- body which is your right hand? Sounds simple. Probably you have in re- sponse held out your right hand but that is not M hat is wanted. You are not asked to show or hold out your right hand, but to describe it in words so as to make clear to a neighbour something of the distinc- tions we draw between right and left. Our readers tv ill hear with astonish- ment that a big explosion took place at Lennon's store, Abbott-street on the 24th inst., when eleven cases of Christmas goods were blown open, and scattered all over the floor, shelves and counters. After the cases the goods went off and there were in consequence fur- ther load explosions of merriment in muy homes.*

From Our Point of vl«w. .ZSS m^SäV^Si CBSTBAi WorkaGuarantae Act, spent Mttl- the past week at the Mul- grave making inquiries into the neeeasity for additions to the plant to deal with the cane crops axpeditiously and economi- cally. He ha« found that more per- manent tramway is absolutely necessary, besides truck« and various detail addi- tions to the mill itself. Doubtless, as a result of his visit the Mulgrave Mill will be properly equipped in time for next season's crushing and the trials and troubles through which the management have "bad to pass during the last two season« will not lie repeated. Mr Fiddes apeak« in glowing terms of the prospects of the Company and say« that next season it will take the mill fully six month«, crushing night and day to deal with the available cane. As a matter of fact he thinks that before very long the mill will have to be enlarged if it is to deal with all the cane likely to be avail- able in 1899. He thinks that the manage- ment have done wo...
